TERRELL CO., GA (WALB) -

The Terrell County football team is starting a new wave entering this fall.

With just seven returning starters, and some brand new facilities, this isn't your grandfather's Greenwave.

In fact, it isn't even last year's squad.

Forget just replacing four-year starting quarterback, and current Georgia Bulldog Tray Bishop.

Terrell County has over a dozen more starting positions to replenish.

Entering his 19th season--William Huff is back to the drawing board with his squad.

He's focusing on the basics of in-game situations for the inexperienced bunch.

"We've got to gel together," said Huff. "The new faces with no game experience, they've got to learn how to play together. Working on timing offensively, working on fits on defense."

Huff will also be leaning on the few vets he does have left in the locker room.

"It puts a lot on my shoulders," said four-year starting linebacker and center Justin Powell. "Getting guys to practice on time, letting them know they have to work hard because at this school we don't have the numbers."

Faces aren't all that's new. 

The nearly $500,000 project for a new field house, locker rooms and practice field is near complete.

It'll be ready when open the season at home against Taylor county on the 18th.
